Bush reviews unfinished business and his legacy

Bush reviews unfinished business and his legacy

11:37 PM CST on Saturday, January 10, 2009

By TODD J. GILLMAN / The Dallas Morning News
tgillman@dallasnews.com

WASHINGTON – Every president leaves unfinished business. For George W. Bush, the list includes two wars and the war on terror, saving Social Security, establishing an enduring Republican majority, and much, much more.

In some cases, like immigration reform, he concedes tactical miscalculations. Mostly, though, Bush maintains that he did his best and did the right thing, even when it cost him.

"I know this, that I never sold my soul for the sake of approval ratings, which matter not one whit to me. Evidently they do to a lot of other people, but not to me," he told The Dallas Morning News last week. "What matters most is the principles that you adhere to in life, particularly if you're the president of the United States."

It's a certitude his fans admire and detractors find maddening.

As Bush reviewed his tenure the other day in the Oval Office, he projected confidence that history will judge him more generously than his contemporaries. But for now, the country is clearly ready to move on.

Barack Obama's inauguration in nine days will draw record throngs. Millions are counting on him to dismantle the legacy of cowboy diplomacy, to mop up after Bush's recession and end the wars he started.

Bush wishes him the best. He hosted Obama and the three living former presidents for lunch last week to usher his successor into their elite fellowship.

But Obama's victory represented a sharp turn, in both style and substance.

The country's unease with the outgoing president stands at odds with Bush's own assessment of his performance.

Political capital

Obama comes to power with substantially more political capital than Bush did eight years ago, after the bitter Florida recount.

Jackass T.J. Gillman just HAD to get that in. Sheesh!!

God bless you, President Bush.

I didn't agree with all you did or tried to do, but I wish you the very best and thank you for fighting the war on terror against those that would destroy this great country.

I voted for him and would do it again, but the past couple of years he seemed to have lost his mind and was a huge disappointment. I blame him for what we have getting ready to take over in 10 days. His bailouts were nothing short of criminal. President Bush, I can’t figure you out but I do know you greatly disappointed me and I’m not sure I can forgive.

Mr. Todd J. Gillman, author of this piece of trash, failed to accuse President Bush of kicking puppies and using foul language in front of nuns. How can he call himself an objective journalist while leaving out these obvious well known facts? Doesn’t this guy watch TV news?

“establishing an enduring Republican majority”

Who the heck ever did any such thing? Not Reagan. Maybe Lincoln, but he had to almost literally fight a war against the Democratic party to achieve it.

I think history ought to record that Bush’s failures, with the exception of Harriet Meirs (or however you spell her name) wer all and without exception Big Government debacles. The bail-outs being the worst offense of all, to my mind. Iraq and Afghanistan are yet to be decided, but let it be remembered that war is the biggest government project of all.

Also, I think history ought to record that Bush’s scandals were the lamest of the past fifty years. Valerie Plame? Her outing wasn’t a crime. “Bush Lied, People Died”? That was the longest and most tedious “rush to war” ever. Plus, the Democrats, over a hundred other nations, and nearly the U.N. went along with it. Katrina? Louisiana’s responsibility.

Bush will always be alright in my book. He had the political courage to try big things, even though many of his policies were doomed to failure because his own countrymen did nothing but hamstring him every step of the way.

His biggest flaw: he was too much of a gentleman. He let his political adversaries' slanderous attacks on his character go unanswered, trying to be "above the fray." Instead, he allowed them to define him. He should have better utilized the bully pulpit to sock the whining sissies right in the nose. He should have exposed them for the cowards they are and left them feeling humiliated. He lost the PR war, and in this day and age, PR is everything in politics.

President Bush has done so many things right. We all ought to be grateful.. but sadly many here are not.

I do think his biggest failure has been communcation and failure to defend what he has done. Failure to pin the blame on the donkeys for the economy for what they did. It was NOT his policies that gave us this recession. But you would never know it. Failure to defend folks on the whole Plame scandal.

I only wish he could communicate better so folks would know he really was a good, decent president.

"Decent? What do you mean by that?"..

After Clinton and Carter, you can really wonder what decent means?

OK, here is some help fromMiriam Websters:

Main Entry: de·cent Pronunciation: \ˈdē-sənt\ Function: adjective Etymology: Middle French or Latin; Middle French, from Latin decent-, decens, present participle of decēre to be fitting; akin to Latin decus honor, dignus worthy, Greek dokein to seem, seem good Date: 1539

1 archaic a: appropriate b: well-formed : handsome;

2 a: conforming to standards of propriety, good taste, or morality

b: modestly clothed

3: free from immodesty or obscenity

4: fairly good : adequate , satisfactory

5: marked by moral integrity, kindness, and goodwill

Bush leaves a very small footprint,
for a two-term president.

other than two excellent (and one bad)
supreme court nominees,

Bush is forgettable

Obama has neither “style” or “substance”.

He brings the phrase “empty suit” for s street thud to a new level. Obama disgusts and embarrasses me.

It's not going to happen.

Besides, I wouldn't hang his legacy on just those two guys.

He has kept us safe for 8 years and I am very grateful for that.

“end the wars he started.”

The author is a terrorist sympathizer. The war in Afganistan was started by al-Qaeda attacking America on 9-11, not to mention all of the other al-Qaeda attacks. The war in Iraq was started by Saddam’s refusal to comply with the cease fire conditions. I bet this author believes the war in Gaza was started by Israel.

He leaves office as "Bailout Bush" to me.

What he did in the last 4 months of his Presidency has set this nation up for tyranny and ruin.

His "Bailouts" do not erase all the good he did, but come pretty close.

I believe that President Bush worked with the liberals, just like he did as Governor in Texas. I do not think he ever lied which is far more than I could ever say about the Clintons. However, his ‘compassion’ was his downfall as liberals used it against him and it became his weakness.

I think he came to terms with the liberals, they could run the domestic front if they did not pull the funding on the military fighting these lunatic terrorists in their own sand pits or swamps around the globe.

Unfortunately, the flood of lies spewed out by the liberals, 24/7 saturated the products of public education. And as if in a hypnotic trance the majority voted for a promise of ‘hope’ and ‘change’.

Lord McCain campaigned as if he too was under that same hypnotic trance.... he after all apparently deceived himself into believing all that power to fund elections he gave his media lovers was his key to the ‘White House’.

Whether we like it or not, Bush will be known as the president on whose watch this economic disturbance occurred. I don’t think it was his fault, but none the less he is going to be have this hung around his neck for eternity.

I may be the last guy on the planet to know it, but I was unaware of the loans that were being given out to people who didn’t have means to pay them back. If Bush had done his job, I would have known about it years ago. The general public would have, and Conservatism would have been standing tall having objected to the practice.

At the current time, those types of loans are still being made. People without means to repay loans are non the less having them reconfigured at this time. As far as I know, new poor loans are being granted.

So what have we learned here? What real end to this mess have we actually installed? As far as I can tell, we are still setting ourselves up for future failures.

If my perception of what is taking place is accurate, and please folks by all means let me know if it isn’t, then Bush will essentially take the blame for something he didn’t help avoid. That is probably fitting.

I do believe the Democrats masterminded this catastrophe, but our side did not object loudly enough. We essentially played along. Remember, we had the majority in Congress for six years of Bush’s presidency. And the Republicans let this happen.

Thanks Meekie. I have few gripes about Bush. The only things he did totally wrong were:

Harriet Rogers

The two border agents

His stance on immigration

The massive bailouts (taxpayer money for failing companies)

Oh yeah, that's important. Leaving the border wide open and giving the banks 700 billion is real decent,but hey, he dresses nice. Who cares the country is going down the tubes. And you can blame the democrats, but he is the commander in chief,who sits back and watches the nation crumbles. I voted for the guy twice and regret it. He's an awful president and has ruined the Republican party, if there is such a thing.

Unforunately, the attacks frm the MSM & fellow travellers have made it impossible to analyze GWB w/o being labeled as a BDS sufferer

I started out w/high hopes for him. Having been stationed @ Lackland during his time as Gov. of TX, I knew he was no conservative, but Rush had personally spoken to him and stated that he was "right-center", so I voted for him as a LOTE.

He immediately started to hand things to the worst of the Lefty-Libs: Kennedy, Reid, etc. As head of the Rep. party, his influence pushed the Rs to capitulate on every front, because for the Lefty agenda to pass GWB had to cultivate the Liberals in the Rep. party. If, after handing things over to Kennedy & Co., the R majority stopped the legislation, GWB would look like he really didn't mean his rhetoric.

This caused the voters who'd voted for Conservs in congress to loose faith in their senators & reps so they started voting them out.

Maverick McCain, in order to stand out, went farther Left. Then, GWB convinced congress to pass Campaign Finance Reform, (CFR) saying if it violated the Constitution, (which it obviously does...) AND didn't contain 7(?) specific things, he'd not sign it. This caused the Conservs in congress to go along & pass it. Then, stating he thought it was unconstitutional, he signed it! That violation of his Oath of Office was my 1st. warning. Would that I'd had heeded it.

In addition, if you stood up to GWB & were an "R", under the new CFR laws, he marked you to have your funds cut off at a critical moment, (see Santorum's re-election). For the 1st time in party history he meddled in primaries. (see Toomey vs Spector). In favor of the RINO! This also happened in the Snowe, Jeffords (Jumpin'Jim), and Chaffee primaries. In the election he pulled funds from Santorum for Chaffee, even though it was obvious Chaffee wouldn't win -- causing Santorum's defeat.

He worked to keep the borders open...

PDA's buffer fully, but you get the idea...

establishing an enduring Republican majority,

His legacy in that regard will be how his pigheadedness and stubborn pursuit of policies that weakened the party, actually did more to establish an enduring Dem majority.

It will take years to undo the damage W's done to the party, unless Obama and the Dems so spook the voters that they prove as inept as Bush and Rove at solidifying the support enjoyed at their high point.

Thanks for the ping. I think history will be kind to President Bush. Ever the gentleman, he and Mrs. Bush brought dignity to the White House. Politically, he had so many important decisions to make. Whose to say where we would be today had we not gone to war. No one can say with certainty what would have happened.

I’m so glad they are coming back to Dallas and getting out of the rat race of Washington. I’m sure they will enjoy building his library at SMU.

Give me a break, of all the other disappointing things he has done in the last 4 years, you bring up our two favorite border guards.

Talk about disappointing; how about declaring a financial emergency 1 month before the presidential election thus sealing our fate with Osama Obama.

Amazing, isn't it? I, like you, never wanted to see this happen.

Ramos' wife was on talk radio, and her story almost brought me to tears.

Let me be frank, and a little harsh:

GW Bush is a big, two faced, back stabbing jerk for not pardoning these border agents who did their job, and I wish I could say that to his face.

Oh - meanwhile, the drug runner they shot is now in prison for committing more crimes - but don't worry. The Taxpayers (read: you and me) paid his worthless family millions in "compensation."

I didn’t think anyone could equal Jimmy Carter in their total ignorance and stupidity in the Office of the Presidency, but Bush has given him a run for his money.

“two wars and the war on terror,”

He did just that and did it well. The rest of his domestic policy was great considering his burdens.

As for the recount, he won fair and square and Obama is coming into a much more safe government. He won’t have to deal with terrorist attacks (like Bush did) or prosecute two wars. He can continue with the system Bush successfully set up and could round up more vermin. Gitmo is set up and running. I don’t think Obama sees this and I imagine we’re gonna get hit sooner or later after the inauguration.

The last time the terror scum hit it was just after Bush took office. Obama is going to be similarly tested. I don’t see him succeeding though.

I don't think so Lady Jag.

You're a lawyer, or at least you should be one based on your screen name - unless you are lying. I can assure you I really am a pilot.

As an attorney, you should evaluate the facts. Did GW Bush bailout the banks and the UAW? Answer?

Did GW Bush fail to pardon Border Agents who did their job?

Do you want their names.............counselor?
